    I have been working at AppLovin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - opportunities for advancement BUT only if you work for it. Doesn't matter where you worked before or went to school, if you deliver results, you will be rewarded - amazing team, lots of people to learn from - easy to see the impact of your work - very little management overhead or supervision, few meetings - travel opportunities depending on role - customers genuinely like the product and engineering team iterates quickly

    Cons

    - occasionally under performers are kept around for too long - company is growing extremely quickly, and I feel that to deliver results, I put in a lot of nights/weekends. No one asks me to, but I see others around me doing it (including management)

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn new disciplines. Given the ownership to make decisions. Great perks. Management really cares about the employees.

    Cons

    Due to fast nature of work environment, process is sometimes not in place or overlooked (which is a common trade off in any fast working environment)

    Pros

    I had a great onboarding experience, even remotely. Everyone works together as a team. When you need help people are happy to help you out and will always get back to you quickly. Fast paced work environment where you can easily make an impact. Great team and fun ideas all around.

    Cons

    Nothing so far. Though this may change as time passes.

    I have been working at AppLovin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Slow, focused growth when it comes to adding people to the teams Supportive of employees in and out of the office, you will have the freedom to go to appointments, pick up kids, etc without anxiety that you are being judged. You just need to make sure to get your work done. Talented teams and management that are willing to take time to help you learn new things and answer question Minimal meetings. If you don't need to be in the meeting, you shouldn't be.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a clock in and clock out type job where you keep your head down, come in get your work done and leave, this is not the place for you. The culture is about getting to know your coworkers and being part of a supportive team.

    I have been working at AppLovin full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I've been at the company for around 8 years now and every year I learn something new. The company keeps growing and changing. This presents tons of opportunities to learn something new and contributes to my professional (and sometimes personal) growth.

    Cons

    The rapid growth makes it hard to meet everyone. I wish I met more people in person (when it is safe of course).

    I have been working at AppLovin full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is very helpful--always reaching out to support and lend a hand. The folks here bring alot of passion to their work--and coupled with their diligent work ethics--form tight knit teams. You're given autonomy over your workstream and encouraged to be proactive in how you operate.

    Cons

    A client facing role brings some difficult partners you have to work with

    I have been working at AppLovin full-time

    Pros

    if you are looking to work hard and get rewarded for it fairly, you cant find a better place for it.

    Cons

    if you are looking to get a 9 to 5 job where this is just another job on your resume and you have nothing new to offer, this is not the right place for you. The caliber of talent and output here are both exceptionally high and your lack of contribution will get noticed pretty quickly.

    Pros

    AppLovin is a really good place to work. All people are nice, passionate and professional. Work-life balance is also great.

    Cons

    Sometimes I feel that the company is too logical. But not a big issue.
